apparently most people thought here I don't understand that use strict (or more specifically the 'vars' part of it) forces the need of "my". My question why do we need that in a for-loop.
in reply to Re: why need my in a foreach loop?
in thread why need my in a foreach loop?
As you also know way better than I, Perl 6 can get by without this. I don't see when does that "my" do any useful work there. It is not the "my" that defines the scope of this variable so IMHO it is there only to satisfy "use strict".
